Initiative to Fix First Ave Getting Underway

If you’ve ever negotiated the potholes along the road that connects the Amtrak Station and the areas to the East including downtown, you know that the road — while difficult to travel – is often worth the effort because it’s such a valuable shortcut.

The road’s condition has been the topic of reader-contributed content here on The Minot Voice previously and a local conversation piece for decades at least. The reason offered for why nothing’s ever been done is related to the railroad and land ownership. Well, one downtown property owner is attempting to move the issue forward, and he’s removing one of the hang-ups from the equation.

Check out the video below of Chad Thompson of Norsk Brothers, LLC, the property owner group that owns the former Bridgman Creamery building talking about his initiative to Fix First Avenue. If you’d like to see road improved, you’re invited to share your comments in the web form below the video, comment on the post, or email
